MISSIONS, VISION, VALUES
We are artisans of marine aquaculture, masters of our know-how.
Our group grew by associating small production entities, all exemplary as much by the recognized quality of the four noble species that we raise as by the pioneering spirit of the men who invest themselves in the Group.
Philippe Riera, passionate about the sea, has put issues related to food and health at the heart of the Group's values.
This is how he is the promoter of responsible breeding practices where animal welfare is a priority. In fact, we invest in order to continuously improve our breeding processes in order to provide consumers with a remarkable and constant sanitary, nutritional and organoleptic quality. At Gloria Maris Group, we share the same base of values, the same commitment to sustainable development and resource conservation. /p>

THE FRENCH EXCEPTION
Gloria Maris Groupe is today a French reference in the world of aquaculture.
Quality FirstWhile some practice intensive breeding, looking for a quick profitability, aquaculture in the open sea in Corsica and Sardinia or in shore basins in Gravelines, Noirmoutier and Trédarzec, is on the line of premium markets. Thus, unlike some competition, the group has from the outset bet on a craft production, qualitative and demanding regarding the preservation of the environment and the quality of its products.
Gloria Maris Group perfectly illustrates the positioning of the French market.It is a well-reasoned exploitation which, today, allows it to be a recognized actor in the vast world of aquaculture: low density in the parks and ponds, balanced natural food respecting the biology of the species (result of a research and development carried out by the breeder), zero pesticide and zero treatment objective, fishing on order guaranteeing exceptional freshness ... All this, combined with the benefits of highly oxygenated seawater whose temperatures respect the natural cycle of the species and a constant current, allows breeding conditions rarely matched and products with optimal taste and nutritional qualities.
The fish of Gloria Maris Groupe are exported throughout Europe and Asia.
« Thanks to the expertise of the teams, we control the entire production chain, from larvae and fingerlings to fattening up to shipping. On each of the breeding sites of the 4 noble species, sea bass, sea bream, salmon sea, turbot, all the leaders are estimated professionals of the aquaculture."
THE FUTURE ?
For the Group, which is almost artisanal in size, particularly in the face of some giants in Europe or in the world, winning new export market shares means implementing innovative strategies. Evidently that developments in market and research techniques involve heavy investments and resources for SMEs.
Diversity testifies to the strength of the Group, whose leaders master short-term issues. The know-how when it comes to breeding in the open sea in the Mediterranean or in onshore basins, the conquering spirit and the capacity to rationalize the means, open up beautiful prospects.
«Through a daring entrepreneurial approach we imagine pooling certain costs with the French leaders in this sector (mainly R & D, new products, breeding techniques, food ...).We are working on a strategy that will allow us to exceed the threshold of critical size for these new investments, by collaborating on the base of shared values, strong identity and preserved capitalistic independence..».
